Data Center Strut Structural Ceiling

Tate Strut

Steel Structural Ceiling Grid System

Tate Strut is a strong, galvanized steel profile with a white painted finish. Uniquely integrated welded flanges support tiles, light fixtures, and return air grilles – removing the need for two separate ceiling systems.

The continuous open channel slot allows for full flexibility when suspending cable trays, bus bars, and other heavy accessories from the structural ceiling. Both strut main runners and structural tees are pre-drilled for infill connections based upon application specifications.
